How to print ACT! Help file?

I'd like to print ACT! 11.1's help file to read on the train. Is there some efficient way to expand all the topics and print it?

Re: How to print ACT! Help file?

I think this might work:
  1. Open Help and select the top item in Contents tab
  2. Right-click and Print. Select Print the selected heading and all subtopics.
  3. While this prompt is still shown, go to your TEMP folder (usualy c:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp ), and find the latest file of the pattern "~hh*.htm". This is a concatenation of all the HTML files in the heading you wanted to print.
  4. Copy this file elsewhere before cancelling (or continuing) the print job, as the file will then be deleted.
  5. Open the file from there with Internet Explorer (not Firefox or other browser). You should see all topics displayed correctly. Now you can print the file. You can customize the headings and footers in IE File - Page setup
  6. Select the next item in Contacts and repeat from 2-5
